About Ginger
Ginger essential oil is extracted from the plant Zingiberaceae officinale of the Zingiberaceae family and is also known as Vietnam Ginger.
The plant is said to originate from India, China, and Java, yet is also native to Vietnam. It was most likely brought to Europe between the 10th and 15th centuries as a condiment and spice.
Ginger is a perennial herb and grows to about 3 - 4 feet high with a thick spreading tuberous rhizome. Every year it shoots up a stalk with narrow spear-shaped leaves, as well as white or yellow flowers growing directly from the root.
It has been used as a medicine since very early times and is recorded in both Vietnam and Chinese texts and is also mentioned in the literature of the ancient Greeks, Romans, and Arabians.
Vietnamese and Asian medicine uses ginger for stomach problems such as stomach-ache, diarrhea, and nausea. The Chinese also use it to boost the heart and to help with mucus and phlegm.
The oil is extracted by means of steam distillation from the unpeeled or dried root of the plant and can yield about 0.5-1% oil.
